I received 2 notices for a recall on my ignition switch and nothing is available as of today 7/10/15. End of 2014 was my first notice and July 2015 is another. Backorder is what I here from the dealerships. Why send theses notice if you don't have the products to take care of us? I also received 2 notices on my durango 2007, VIN# [xxx]. I am not complaining about any car dealership. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
